"Storage Wars" star Brandi Passante scored a partial victory in court earlier this month over a website she claims posted a fake porn video and fake nude photos of her, but a judge awarded the reality star a measly $750 in damages.

Brandi Passante was seeking $2.5 million when she filed suit against the X-rated website Is Anyone Up and its operator Hunter Moore, but Judge James V. Selna of U.S. District Court in central California ruled June 14 that the "Storage Wars" star "provides absolutely no support for this calculation of damages," Yahoo's The Wrap reported.

Instead, Selna granted the "Storage Wars" star $750 plus attorney's fees, and ordered a permanent injunction against Moore to "remove any remaining and undisclosed content of video from all websites." Selna also barred him from "disseminating the content of the video."

Passante had accused Moore of posting a pornographic video and nude photos that purported to feature her on his website Is Anyone Up. She was seeking damages for false designation of origin, defamation, false light invasion of privacy, and disparagement.

Passante and her husband Jarrod Schulz are cast members on A&E's "Storage Wars," a reality show about buyers who travel to public auctions across California and bid against each other to obtain the contents of abandoned storage lockers, which they then resell through their own venues.

The show has faced a series of lawsuits recently, most notably from its former star Dave Hester. Hester claims he was fired after he complained to producers that some of the storage lockers were staged in order to add dramatic effect.

"Nearly every aspect of the series is faked, even down to the plastic surgery that one of the female cast members underwent in order to create more 'sex appeal' for the show," Hester alleged in his suit.
